money

The table below shows the values of the NHS Terms and Conditions of Service (Agenda for Change) hourly pay from 1 April 2018. All efforts have been made to ensure these rates match those contained in the ESR system, but hourly figures are shown for illustrative purposes only. Full details of pay arrangements are available in the NHS terms and conditions of service handbook

Spine points are no longer used since the 2018 changes to the NHS Terms and Conditions of Service, but for ease of reference the table below contains the previous spine point that corresponds to the new pay structure value.
